Card Making 101 – Cutting Designer Series Paper

Beautifully printed papers are essential for paper crafting. Adding a layer of gorgeous print adds interest and also the easiest and most effective way to bring your projects to life. How many times have you reached for your Designer Series Papers when you needed to make a card in a hurry? It’s my go-to when pressed for time.

Designer Series Papers (DSP) usually come in big sheets of double-sided 12 x 12 inch which is a feature I love most.

I like to have different prints so that I have something for any occasion. Rule of thumb is to have a small variety of each so you can make cards for any occasion that may arise.

  • Flowers and greenery for birthdays and everything in between
  • Graphics and geometrical images for male cards
  • Christmas prints for the holidays
  • Baby images to welcome babies and first birthdays
  • Metallic or glittery printed papers that are great for weddings and milestone birthdays.

I find great satisfaction when I cut my papers to size and turn them into cards or use them in memory keeping/scrapbooking. When you use up your supply, there’s a reason for buying new papers to enjoy.

It’s a shame to waste your Designer Series Papers. Believe me when I say that you will not want to throw even the smallest piece of it. They are just too pretty! So, here’s a quick tutorial of how you can maximise your 12×12 DSP.

I hope that you enjoyed what I’ve shared with you today. I encourage you to cut your papers so that when inspiration strikes you’re ready to create.
